Watch A-Trak Make Beats From Randomly Selected Records On Rhythm Roulette

It’s now A-Trak’s turn to take a stab at Mass Appeal’s acclaimed web series, Rhythm Roulette. The series challenges producers to walk into a record store, blindfolded, and randomly pick out three albums to sample in the studio.

For this episode, the Fool’s Gold Records bossman ended up with three of the more difficult samples we’ve seen on the show. A-Trak picked out some Ethiopian funk, some blues, and another obscure record from the 70’s. The turntablist maestro gets to work immediately in the studio, expertly navigating the instrumentation on the records to pick out what he wants to work with.

Being the versatile producer that he is, A-Trak comes out with three, impressively distinct beats in the end. Check out the video for yourself below and enjoy!

A-Trak Switches Things Up & Drops Catchy New Deep House Track “DJs Gotta Dance More” Ft. Terry Todd

When we see new stuff from A-Trak, we expect him to be uploading one of his famous scratching routine videos, or perhaps collaborating on some type of hip-hop influenced tracks. Today however, the Fool’s Gold boss has dropped something we’ve rarely heard from him before -- a deep house track -- and it’s really good.

The new tune is called “DJs Gotta Dance More,” and it features the vocals of Terry Todd, an old school house music legend from New York. Terry Todd’s seasoned, gritty vocals look back on a time of crate-digging, catching a vibe in a crowd, and creating a unique style. A-Trak’s production combines funk with house using a twangy guitar riff and uplifting piano chords. All together, the new track is sounding really solid.

A-Trak has dipped his toes in the deep house genre in the past with tracks like “Push” and “We All Fall Down,” but this brand new number is his best yet. With how well “DJs Gotta Dance More” has turned out, perhaps A-Trak will continue to produce this type of music.

Stream “DJs Gotta Dance More,” featuring Terry Todd, below. Enjoy!

Watch A-Trak Chop Up Pusha T’s “The Games We Play” In New Turntablism Video

A-Trak is certainly one of the most prominent turntablists within the realm of electronic music. He’s been booked at a wide variety of shows and festivals where he’s able to not only throw down a DJ set, but also show off his incredibly impressive turntable routines.

Occasionally, A-Trak will take to YouTube to upload videos of himself trying out new routines. He recently posted a brief, minute long video of him messing around with Pusha T’s “The Games We Play,” one of the hottest songs off the G.O.O.D. Music artist’s recent album, Daytona.

He chops the song up right in front of us, creating a unique little segment that he then uses to transition into Eve’s “Let Me Blow Ya Mind.” The routine is short, but nearly flawless, and it’s awesome that A-Trak decided to share this with everyone.

Check out the clip of the routine below and enjoy!
